What’s So Great About Jason’s Deli?

Jason’s Deli serves the standard fare at delicatessens such as muffalettas and Po’boys as well as soups, pasta, salads, and baked potatoes. One difference that Jason’s Deli is their elimination of trans fat, high fructose corn syrup, and MSG from all the food items on their menu. Does that mean Jason’s Deli products have become bland and lacking in taste?


Even Better with a Gluten-Free Menu

jasons-deli-logoAu contraire, this fast casual restaurant deli chain with headquarters in Beaumont, Texas just got even better with their introduction of gluten-free products. Jason’s Deli’s Garden Fresh Salad Bar allows customers to “build” their own salads from more than 50 salad ingredients within a wide selection of healthy or indulgent items. The thing people love about Jason’s Deli is that it charges just “one price” for all a customer eats (unlike other restaurants that charge the customer by salad weight).

Jason’s Deli continuously includes new salad ingredients to its salad bar. For the whole month of August, customers can have organic apple slices from their Fresh Innovation California supplier on the very first day. August 2 has organic baby carrots, August 3 has organic balsamic vinegar, organic field green on August 4, organic green peas are on for August 5, August 6 has organic spinach, and wild Alaska sockeye salmon is on for August 7.

Certified 100% Organic by the USDA

And that’s just for the first week of August! The reason why the word “organic” keeps popping up is because Jason’s Deli salads are made of 100% U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)-certified food items and ingredients. The grapes, apples, strawberries, and bananas you will find in the salad bar are all fresh and organic as well.

And if you’re a serial weight watcher, Jason’s Deli has their unique Special Diets Wizard which you can fill out with any allergies you might have to certain food items. The “wizard” will immediately display what food items are free from your indicated allergens. Pretty cool, huh?

You Can Always Build Your Own Sandwich at Jason’s Deli

The Jason’s Deli Nutrition Calculator helps customers build their own menus by customizing your very own “basket.” Neat, huh? And then there’s the Jason Deli Interactive Nutrition Menu which lists each food item’s total number of calories, fats, sodium, and other nutrition facts to let you make the right food choices for your meals.

Their New Orleans muffaletta can only be described as mouthwatering with its spread of an olive mix family recipe and creamy Provolone cheese over layers of a choice of quarter ham and salami or quarter roasted turkey breast on crusty grilled muffaletta bread. Jason’s Deli has other Specialty Sandwiches as well:

Amy’s Turkey-O: onion bun is toasted and layered with sliced avocado, red onions, roasted turkey breast, jalapeño pepper, roma tomatoes, stone ground mustard, and lettuce.

Papa Joe: named for the father of Jason’s Deli’s founder, this is herb focaccia filled with roasted tomatoes, asiago, fresh basil pesto, roasted turkey breast, and mayonnaise.

Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich®: enjoy the sumptuous blend of Swiss chesse, tomato, grilled chicken breast, Thousand Island dressing, bacon, and guacamole on whole grain wheat bread.

Tuna Melt: you haven’t had the Tuna Melt if you don’t get it from Jason’s Deli. This one has Swiss cheese, tuna salad, mayonnaise, and tomato on whole grain wheat bread (is there any other Tuna Melt like this? Don’t think so!).

MeataBalla: you couldn’t get anymore Italian with this sandwich but with a Louisiana twist. New Orleans French bread is topped with delicious Italian-style meatballs, Provolone cheese, and Italian red sauce.

How Jason’s Deli Makes Sandwich Creation Fun

It’s easy peasy. All you have to do is choose your meat, name the bread, select your preferred spreads, and then dress up your sandwich. If this ain’t fun, you will never know what is. You even decide what size you want, whether you want a lighter portion, the whole thing or just half of everything! You can even substitute fresh fruits for the chips and have baked chips or just plain chips.

There’s turkey breast in two variants (smoked and roasted), premium ham, tuna salad (made with eggs), roast beef, chicken salad (made with pineapple and almonds), and several varieties of bread like white, rye, whole grain wheat, telera, herb focaccia, organic wheat wrap, artisan bread with nine grains, onion bun, all-butter croissant, French bread ala New Orleans, and gluten free.

Jason Deli’s Summer Offerings

Of course the regular standbys — pecan-smoked pork loin, sliced pickles, wild Alaska sockeye salmon, chipotle aioli, and pastrami, aside from those already mentioned – are there to make your sandwich experience unforgettably delicious BUT Jason’s Deli offers its customers more for the summer with the addition of food items such as Roasted Corn and Black Bean Salad, beets, hard boiled eggs, cheeses such as feta and asiago, Roasted Pepper Hummus, potato salad, cottage cheese, and Cranberry Mix.
